Hi,

Not sure where I got this from. I found this in the garage while searching for specific puzzle but found this instead. I've spent hours and days but unable to solve.

Appreciate it if you guys can help me figure this one out.

thanks.

This is kind of a standard metal puzzle in which adding another ring doubles the number of moves to remove the long loop.

Highlight below to see:

Basically you want to put the long loop through the middle ring, then slide the it around the ring on the left (you could solve it as a mirror image too). Then loop it through the ring on the left and it should come off.

I may be seeing this wrong, plus it's hard to explain what to do over text. Demoing it is a whole lot easier.

Good luck!
